If you have never seen this adaptation of Dickens' scathing take on the legal profession (as only Dickens can do), you need to buy, borrow, rent or otherwise procure this series, as it is one of the best things the BBC has ever produced. EVER!
|Gillian Anderson as Lady Deadlock-"Bored to death!"|
|Anna Maxwell Martin as the true heroine, Esther Summerson|
|Denis Lawson as Red Two (Wedge) in Star Wars-I knew I had seen those eyebrows somewhere!|
|Denis Lawson a few years later as Mr. John Jarndyce|
I had to look up Denis Lawson on IMDb to find out where I had seen him before, and of course it was as one of the X-Wing fighter pilots in the 3 original Star Wars episodes. Apparently, his role as Red Two (Wedge) inspired both of his nephews in their careers. One nephew, Ewan McGregor, became an actor and another nephew, Colin McGregor became a pilot in the RAF!
|Philip Davis as Mr. Smallweed "Shake me up Judy"|
|Burn Gorman as the unforgettable Mr. Guppy|
|Charles Dance as the oily evil Mr. Tulkinghorn|
|Patrick Kennedy as Richard Carstone and Carey Mulligan as Ada Clare "The Jarndyce Wards"|
|Nathaniel Parker as Mr. Harold Skimpole "I am like a child..."|
Warning, it is like potato chips...hard to stop at just one episode!
